Some say Sept. 7 is simply too early, that some ducks won’t be fledged and that shooting pressure from the young hunters could push ducks from the state before the regular opener.
“We’re not concerned it’s too early,’’ Boggess said. “There aren’t many hunters out for youth day, and they don’t take that many ducks. They are likely to take primarily teal and wood ducks. We think it will work out fine.’’
Said Landwehr: “Some people are concerned there will be ducks that can’t fly, but no one is shooting ducks sitting on the water.’’
“With 5,000 kids, if they each shoot two or three birds, we’re talking 10,000 or 15,000 birds,’’ Landwehr said. “It’s trivial compared to the [overall] harvest,’’ which was 835,000 last season.
Youth day details
Hunters age 15 and under may take regular season bag limits when accompanied by a nonhunting adult (age 18 and older, no license required). Hours are a half-hour before sunrise to 4 p.m. Up to five Canada geese can be taken, too. Motorized decoy restrictions are in effect.
